MAMARONECK — With a few days left before the special election for the state Senate seat in the 37th district, Governor Andrew Cuomo spent his Sunday in Mamaroneck campaigning for Democrat Shelley Mayer.

"It’s not just about Shelly Mayer. We are indicating an entire philosophy, and everything we believe, and the core of who we are as New Yorkers," Cuomo said. “And nobody represents that better than Shelly. She believes in inclusion, she believes in acceptance, she believes in individual rights, she believes in women's rights."

Governor Cuomo spoke at Mayer’s campaign headquarters to rally supporters to keep the seat blue on Tuesday.

A few days ago, former Vice President Joe Biden endorsed Mayer, saying she is the best candidate.

With just days left before the big state Senate race in Westchester, the race between Mayer and Killian could help decide which party controls the New York State Senate.

"This is not just a choice between two people, this is a choice between two very basic philosophies,” Cuomo said.
